Peace Tree

Thursday is Peace Tree night. Go on over and read my post entitled Surveillance.

But before you go, here is a post-related song that should take you back. In 1967, I was eight years old and I'd just immigrated to the U.S. with my family. I loved this song, didn't really understand it for many years, but in the three months it took me to learn the language fluently, I remember loving the line "young people speaking their minds" - thinking that a very, very good idea. :-)

Paranoia strikes deep;
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
Step out of line, The Man come and take you away...

  1. Great band, fabulous song. Seems to be timeless, somehow. Strangely, I was just listening to a reggae version of this (if you can imagine that), which seemed to completely misunderstand the song! Oddly, it was still good.

  3. Well, in 1967 I was 35 years old, had been married for 10 years and had 3 children. I was probably too busy to really listen to the words, but I remember liking the song too. Still do.
